This spring the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) said as part of a two-year, $21.7 million project to improve I-90 between Issaquah and North Bend, the pothole-ridden Raging River overpass/bridge near Preston would be re-paved.
That work is scheduled to start this week and involves a lane closure and reduced speeds through the construction area on I-90.
Staring Sunday night, September 16th, crews will close a single lane of westbound I-90 across the Raging River Bridge, located just east of the Preston off-ramp (exit 22), until Friday morning, September 21st.
This around-the-clock and weather-dependent closure will give crews room to grind and re-pave the left half of the bridge deck.
Crews will complete work the right half of the bridge September 23rd through 28th, weather dependent.
8PM Sunday, September 16th to 5AM Friday, September 21st:
- The left lane of westbound I-90 will be closed.
- The two open lanes will be shifted to the right.
- The speed limit will be reduced to 55 mph.
